Sorry I've been a bit lax on keeping up with ya on the blog, too many hours non-stop has limited my computer time of late. So, catching you up on what's been happening, I worked a crazy 108 hours at the Fd and 20 hours in the shop last Thursday to Tuesday, and took a brief 3 hours out on Saturday between the two to do some trail maintenance on a section of the Knob that has been bothering me for a year.
As Saturday was Independance day, we broke out Tim's special bike to ride around a bit, nothing like a homemade ride to bring a smile to one's face..
I had the pleasure of taking the controls while Kalten and Eric stoked the pedals...ahhh!
The section of trail we worked on was Candy's ridge, previously a multiple log crossing that had eroded into a muddy mess. Mike, Kalten, Eric and myself pulled all the logs out, cut in 3 12" deep french drains, crowned the trail and then layed in a pickup bed full of flat rock over crushed concrete to stabilize the area. Rolls really nice now :)
As Wednesday was my first full day back in the shop for a bit and I was coming off the tough work schedule, I kinda mulled around in a zombie like state and did not really accomplish much. Christi and I spent most the day packing and shipping...bars, forks, and stems all going out.
Here's a shot of Kevin's custom bullmoose we built a month or so back, all painted up in blue/purple pearl with a bit of prismatic to catch the Atlanta sun. This is going on his rainbox colored 80's Ibis. Finally shipping it out now as he tacked on a LD stem to the order and had to wait for me to finish that up.
